Eco-Stewardship Work Day

Eco-Stewardship work focuses on habitat restoration, trail maintenance, stream clean-up and removal of invasive species (like buckthorn, privet and honeysuckle) on several sections of our 264-acre site. Education is always a major focus of the day as volunteers learn to identify and manage plants that may be growing in their own backyards, their schools or city parks and how those plants and their volunteer efforts directly impact their surrounding environment.

Age Requirements: This is a public volunteer opportunity for people 14 .  Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Wear? Long pants and closed toe shoes are mandatory. Layers and hats are always encouraged. Dress for the weather.
